(((soccer###))) Online: Shamrock Rovers vs. UCD Live Stream 10.04.2023

Shamrock Rovers v Bohemians - Where can I watch it and what do I need to know? - extratime. comDave Donnelly Fri, Aug 30 2019 The final Dublin derby of the season sees Bohemians travel to Tallaght in search of an incredible clean sweep of league wins over bitter rivals Shamrock Rovers. Irish football’s most famous and most intense encounter rarely passes off without some hint of drama as familiarity does little to dampen the contempt in which they hold on another. Whether it’s red cards, of which there have been plenty this season, stunning strikes like Danny Mandroiu’s at Dalymount Park or the odd pig’s head thrown at an ex-striker, it’s never boring. The Gypsies have won all three of the sides’ games this season, including a 1-0 victory in Tallaght in April that saw Shamrock Rovers play most of the game with nine players.

UCD AFC v Shamrock Rovers – SoccerMatch Report Shamrock Rovers finish memorable year with win at UCD A goal in both halves was enough for Shamrock Rovers to seal all three points this evening against UCD AFC at the UCD Bowl. Aaron Greene opened the scoring within the first 6 minutes before substitute Power doubled the Hoops’ lead in the last few minutes. The away side battered the UCD box with a flurry of crosses in the early minutes and got their reward after just 5 minutes. After the Students dealt with the initial delivery, the ball came out high on the edge of the box and was headed goalward by Justin Ferizaj.

Trevor Clarke and Lee Grace both saw red in the first half as Dinny Corcoran scored at the second attempt after his penalty was saved by Alan Mannus. The first meeting at Dalymount Park had seen Aaron Greene shown a straight red card, also in the first half, and this time Corcoran scored his penalty. Rovers managed to keep 11 men on the field last time out at Dalymount, but they conceded two penalties, one of which Mannus saved, before Mandroiu won it with a thunderbolt. It’s a cliché that form goes out the window in these games, but how else to explain that Bohs have won seven and drawn one of the last eight meetings despite finishing behind their foes each season? Nevertheless, Rovers are the form team heading into the game with five wins from their last five (two in the FAI Cup and three in the league).

Jinad drove forward and returned the ball to Haist whose drilled low effort was well saved by Pohls in the Hoops’ net. The three points were wrapped up at the 82nd-minute mark. A corner by Sean Kavanagh was not fully dealt with and Simon Power found himself in space to slot home past Lorcan Healy. The travelling fans were also off their feet 5 minutes before to welcome Andy Lyons onto the field upon his introduction. The full-back is moving to EPL Championship side Blackpool in January bringing to an end his very successful Rovers career. It was no surprise that Rovers finished the season with a win against a UCD side who still have their Premier Division survival to fight for. Andy Myler rested many of his key players ahead of Friday’s crucial playoff against Waterford FC at Richmond Park.

It found the path of Aaron Greene who showed composure to swing low and find the back of the net. The Hoops continued to pile the pressure on and had a penalty shout just minutes later when the ball struck the arm of Harvey O’Brien. Referee Derek Tomney waved away the protests, however, having deemed the arm low enough not to warrant a spot-kick. It could have been 2-0 in the next phase of play when Aaron Greene once again had an effort on goal when he was found free at the back post. His header was initially fumbled by Kian Moore but he managed to eventually swat it clear for a corner. As the first half progressed, Rovers settled down a little and UCD back 4 could breathe a little easier.

After driving goalward he tried to selflessly set up Tobi Jinad who was unable to control the pass. Lee Grace did well to capitalise and clear the ball before being fouled by Jinad. The second half carried on in much the same vain. UCD struggled to get a foothold in the game and Rovers enjoyed plenty of possession. It looked like there would just be the one goal before Power found space in the UCD box after a Sean Kavanagh corner kick to slot home and but the three points beyond doubt. UCD’s best chance came with 20 minutes on the clock. An excellent header from Haist put himself and Tobi Jinad 2v2 with the backtracking Rovers defence.

Bohs, by contrast, have squeezed past First Division opposition in Shelbourne and Longford Town in the FAI Cup, either side of a 10-1 hammering of UCD and a 6-1 defeat to Dundalk. Whatever the outcome, spectators won’t be short of drama and talking points to chew over long into the night. What time is the match? Kick-off is 8pm.

Their next real chance came just after the half-hour mark when Ferizaj tried to set up Gaffney with a lovely dink over the UCD defence. Kian Moore was alive to the danger, however, and reached the ball in the nick of time. UCD’s only real moment in the half came at the 37th-minute mark when Donal Higgins picked up the ball in the middle of the park with acres of space ahead to run into.

Where is the match? Tallaght Stadium, Dublin. Who is the referee? Limerick’s Rob Hennessy is the man in the middle. Are there tickets available? Tickets for the home end can be bought at the stadium or online here. The away allocation is sold out. Where can I watch it?
